BoxSpeaker Picks: SF and Oakland Shows – 9/28

Here’s a quick rundown of concerts and events Bay Area readers should check out tonight:

San Francisco:

Cold Fronts, The Jaded, The Wearies, and Flaggs at Neck of the Woods

“Strange Architecture” is a BoxSpeaker favorite because of its lo-fi garage rock feel.

AM & Shawn Lee, Monophonics,  and DJ BCause at the Independent

AM & Shawn Lee hail from Echo Park and bring a 60s/70s French Library feel mixed with some disco riffs.

Menomena and Helio Sequence at the Great American Music Hall

Helio Sequence and Menomena are high school BoxSpeaker favorites, especially Helio Sequence. Bringing together beachy Fender Telecaster guitar sounds and a relaxed but still dancey drum beat, songs like “Keep Your Eyes Ahead” really epitomized high school romance.


Station to Station

Station to Station is a multimedia art public art project. With music from bands and musicians such as Dan Deacon, No Age, and Twin Shadow, and sculptures, films, and prints from dozens artists, this roving mini festival is sure to appeal to all senses and art preferences.
